Renu’s Answer

In addition to what Atul has commented, I would recommend to enhance your people skills. Spend time on personal development, leadership skills and how to deal with people. There are many books out there on "art of dealing with people". This will help you big time in all areas of your life.

I would recommend know MS office (Excel, Word, Email, and PowerPoint).
In addition acquire 2 years associate degree in a community college. Nowadays associate (2-yr) or undergraduate degrees are norm in the corp world.
Develop good writing skills (English). This will come handy. How you phrase your sentence, and how you deliver concise message is expected.

Madisyn’s Answer

Soft skills and hard skills are required for Office Administration jobs. For hard skills, for example, you'd need to be proficient at the Microsoft Suite (Word, Power Point, Excel, Teams, etc). You may also need to be proficient in G-Suite, which is very similar to Microsoft applications (Google Sheets, Docs, Drive, G-Mail, etc). On the other hand, you'd need soft skills like organization, communication, etc. You can build these skills through office jobs at your school, courses in Microsoft or G-suite, etc.

Ann’s Answer

Being able to cope with a lot of change is crucial. Being tough is important. You should speak your mind, stand by your beliefs, and never be afraid to offer ideas or suggestions to improve processes. It's also possible to increase your salary quickly if you keep your skills sharp and become an expert at apps like Microsoft Office, CRMs, HRIS, etc. Joining professional admin associations or women's groups for admins is really a great way to get involved, network and enhance your skills.

Can't wait to hear more!

Brianna’s Answer

I would say definitely computer skills to prove that you are acknowledged in the systems that they use in office. Having good communication and leadership skills would also be a plus, as they can see you as someone who is willing to put in the work and take initiative.
